Just a heads up for those with dvd-audio players (like I have in my car); this is not actually a dvd audio disc. It's dvd video. When I try to play it in my car, the player gives me a format error. This was very frustrating. Just a heads up.

This is true. However, just so people aren't confused, since there have already been complaints about the lack of actual video footage, it's encoded as DVD video so it plays on normal DVD players, but it actually fills the same function as a DVD-A. It's designed for higher quality audio--rather than a video supplement--without having to get a specialized DVD-Audio player to play it in. More people have DVD players than DVD-A players, so it's probably benefiting the *most* consumers to provide the higher quality audio in this manner. For that I say "Bravo" to Neil and the people behind this release. Unfortunately, though, it also presents somewhat of a drawback for those with DVD-A players in the car. (Do you also have a regular CD player in your car, Jimi? I hope they have designs that play both, since there's a lot of stuff you can't get on DVD-A!)

That said, thanks Jimi for pointing out this distinction. Amazon really should post more thorough production information, shouldn't it?

This is incorrectly listed as a DVD A--what it is, is a dvd with high resolution 24/96 STEREO. DVD AUDIO is 5.1 channel surround sound which this is definately not.
